    Wes...please find me a pair of the round Tiffany &CO. with the T&Co. engraved. Always have wanted a pair but don't want to spend $300 for a set of links. A pair of Mont Blanc's would work as well :slayer:

    LOVE IT if u don't want it I have outfits it will mesh with :D

    Also -- lawyers here back me up -- as I understand it, "policy" is something you do voluntarily. "Mandate" is something you go to jail for or at least get fined for violating. However, ignoring "policy" can get u in trouble (i.e. today's big example of dumbass policy ignoring is Penn State. Policies were in place at institution, NCAA and State level for reporting issues...and people will go to jail for ignoring them).

    Pendleton rulz! At thrift stores. Retail, it's...ugh

    Anyone ever heard of Baker Brothers suits, from London? It looks like it was made in Italy and has nice pick stitching around the lapels, pockets, etc. and is canvassed w/ super 130's. I thought maybe related to Ted Baker?

    How about Kenzo shirts? Found one and saw mixed results on the bay.

    Also found a pair of Hiltl khakis is my size. Made in Romania... Are these made by Incotex?

    I've been to 3 of their auctions, bid on (and won) a couple things...and they keep editing me into shows for auctions I never attended, bidding on shit I would never bid on! The last one showed me bidding on scrimshaw, in which I have zero interest... I did end up returning and getting a refund on an Audubon print that turned out to be a repro and worth like five bucks. But it's nuts how I keep seeing myself on the show totally out of context.

    Free beer though....mmmm.

    Which show were you on? They run them a bunch at a time... And, was it for an auction you actually attended?

    I'm pretty sure blue is better than green. The green is vintage, not Gitman Bros Vintage. But the blue isn't that much greater. Good if it fits you, can't flip very well.



    I'd rock it.


    Should just give me the Norse Projects :fistbump:

    Speaking of dry, I've definitely hella dry here. Ended up picking up stuff only for myself.

    Finds (all for me):
    Shades of Griege hoodie
    5 x Uniqlo t-shrits
    Allsaints Spitalsdfhgskdfh button down
    NWT Porsche Design polo
    Oxxford hanger
    Coach belt and wallet. The nicer Coach.

    [​IMG]

    It was so dry I decided to hit up a consignment store.

    Consignment:
    RRL Raw selvedge size 30 (FUUUUU SHOULDA BEEN SIZE 33)
    I know it isn't awesome, but there was Gap raw selvedge which I personally love.
    Spurr by Simon Spurr Western/Plaid XS (Mainy you fit this?)
    [​IMG]
    Paul Smith mainline floral shirt. XL
    Paul Smith Jeans. Weird selvedge line size 33
    [​IMG]
    Anyone seen this selvedge line before?


    And... they also had some other nice stuff, didn't have enough monies though.

    Oh yeah a Cartier watch.

    I don't know for sure (never took the time to figure it out) but I've suspected. It's good quality and fits well. I like the trousers I have. Mine are wool, though.


    Speaking of: I need a new wallet. Any of you dudes thrifted a nice one you want to get rid of, get at me. (yeah yeah, I know; take it to the trading thread....)

    Nataku -- if those Norse Projects are the same NP you posted awhile ago, I'll buy them from you.

    Dude, they're fake. Why would you want them? :lol:

    I also just had someone inform me that a purse I just threw up was fake :facepalm: Time to waddle over to purse forum and do some investigating...

    Funny you should mention that, because they used the same clip of me bidding twice, but I actually bid on those items. I didn't get any deal the day they filmed, but I have in the past. I was bidding on the railroad cart in tonight's show and that Hudson on the last show.

    You're lucky you got your money back. I've seen them sell a few fake items worth a lot more and I don't think the buyer was refunded...

    I wish I had been at the auction when they had that bronze statue/fountain. I would have bid on that so hard.
